Mail Run Yet? Postybell Lets You Know

Postybell is a very special kind of awesomeness for those of us who actually still get some of our paychecks by mail (i.e. freelancers and other work-at-home types). Postybell is a sensor that you place inside your mailbox. Then, no matter how far away you are, whenever anyone puts anything in there, you get a notification on your smartphone. This is especially great for those days when you can’t remember if the mail runs or not. And unlike other devices that have attempted to do something similar, this does not rely on Wi-Fi or Bluetooth technologies. Postybell actually eliminates the Read More

The device sits in a round cutout on the pier itself. The rope is inside with a carabiner attached.  Any time you get ready to tie, just lift the door, pull out the rope, and attach the carabiner to the boat. Voila: secure! Read More

Take A Drink Out Of The Ol’ Apple

Yes, it shames me to admit it, but I am the guy who relies on hipster Apple to push me through my day and reach full earning potential. I never thought I’d be “that guy,” but here I am immersed fully in the ecosystem. No knocks against Android here: it’s just a matter of preference. Needless to say, guys like me are going to really dig this concept from designer Tomislav Zvonarić.  It’s an Apple iCup, shaped like the iconic logo with plenty of room for your java — at least the first of eight cups — and even an Read More

Swatchmate Pre-Orders, Round Two

SwatchMate, the color-capturing cube that made a big splash on Kickstarter, recently set up a new round of pre-orders on Indiegogo. If you’re not yet familiar with the device, it captures the color of any surface to let you use natural hues in the creative endeavor of your pleasure. This new campaign means you have a chance to own one for a price likely below what it will eventually retail at. There are some colors, like the green of spring leaves or the red of a brick wall, that we just haven’t been able to faithfully reproduce. The SwatchMate changes that Read More
